If we were to list all of the payroll software features offered by BrightPay here, you'd have a lot of scrolling to do. Rest assured that it delivers it all, and delivers it well.
Our payroll software does not set a limit on the number of employees you can add to your payroll. And there are no confusing price brackets that depend on the number of employees you have.
The Bureau version of BrightPay is the perfect way to manage payroll for several employers. There is no limit on the number that can be set up and no confusing pricing structures.
Starters, leaves, year end, and Revenue payments. BrightPay will guide you through the process of creating ROS compatible P45, P46, P45 Part 3, P35 and P30 files.
In BrightPay, any employee (or group of employees) can be individually reverted back or progressed forward in the payroll year at any time. It's super flexible yet safe and simple.
Payslips can be emailed or exported to PDF at the click of a button. They can also be printed on A4 or A5 paper (blank or Thesaurus stationery). Handy customisation options let you do what you need.
As you enter payments, additions and deductions for your employees, a live payslip preview will automatically update to show you the calculated payslip values quickly and clearly.
BrightPay supports weekly, fortnightly, 4-weekly and monthly payroll. The payroll screen gives a clear overview of all periods together and any period can be quickly accessed with one click.
Is an employee starting or leaving? Has an employee recently turned 66? BrightPay will let you know what is happening when and remind you what to do.
Each employer set up in BrightPay requires a password to save and open. The payroll software stops you from performing actions which would invalidate or corrupt your payroll data.
Our payroll software allows you to recall, view and analyse all your payroll data. Multiple reports can be opened together, saved or favourited, exported in popular formats, and printed.
The following redundancy and retirement payments, although not completely tax exempt; do qualify for some relief.
• Wages / Salary in lieu of notice on retirement or redundancy.
• Payment paid by your employer which is additional to the statutory redundancy payment. This additional payment is known as an ex-gratia payment or golden handshake and is up to certain statutory limits.
If your employer provides all or part of the lump sum in another form e.g. car, holiday, etc. the cash value of this item is taxable.
If this lump sum is on the termination of a contract this payment is chargeable to tax in the normal way.
If an employer pays for the cost of retraining an employee as part of a redundancy package, up to €5000 of the retraining cost is exempt from tax. The following conditions apply:
• The employee has more than 2 years continuous full time service
• The retraining is completed within 6 months of the redundancy
• The retraining is designed to improve skills/knowledge to assist in obtaining employment or setting up a business
• The employee cannot take cash instead and must avail of the retraining.
The tax exemption will not apply to dependents, spouse or civil partner of the employer.
